When Class A Potomac announced tonight's starting lineup early this afternoon, Jayson Werth was listed as its No. 3 hitter and right fielder.
Yesterday's Drew Storen-for-Rick Ankiel swap left the Nationals with an unconventional roster: an eight-man bullpen and a four-man bench.
It's another scorcher on South Capitol Street, with the temperature (as I type this at 3:30 p.m.) reading 101 degrees and the heat index a very comfortable 109.
